The competitive community is a cesspool of toxic circlejerks and idiots who only care about themselves.

It's been "ruining" the game for years, and it's only going to get worse.

I used to love and be proud of this community, now I am ashamed to play this game.

Doctors naming things after themselves (diseases and parts of the body) is the most fucking annoying thing ever.

We have perfect names that describe the location of something in the body, thats in the name itself. E.g. Recto-uterine pouch literally means a pouch between the rectum and the uterus, obvious. But someone had to name it the "Pouch of Douglas." Like why, It just makes life harder.

Diseases are even fucking worse. Primary hypocortisolism - Hypo meaning low and cortisol being the hormone affected (primary just means its the organ that secretes cortisol thats the issue, not signalling to it). But no, its commonly known as Addisons disease.

So you get shit fucking questions in exams and from doctors like "what is Addisons disease?" Like just remove the need for that fucking question, just call it primary hypocortisolism and ask me what it means and it makes life easier for everyone BECAUSE ITS IN THE FUCKING NAME rather than me standing there for 20 fucking seconds trying to remember what fucking Addisons is.

irl vent half inspired by recent experiences and half inspired by shoosh’s post (not aimed at u I’m sure u will be one of the good GPs <3)

But seriously what do some GPs actually get paid for? The outcome of my visit is completely determined by who I visit like I went twice this week just because the first guy was so much less help than the second guy.
My friend literally had to have an ovary removed because the GPs kept dismissing her as definitely not having a twisted ovary (guess what she had), and then it got so bad that it died

Again obviously not all GPs, some are fantastic, but I swear is it just me who gets to enjoy the occasional carefree guy paying 0 attention or is this a thing at most places?

I have been to various doctors several times and the hospital a couple of times (mri and xrays) over the past 3/4 years and every single visit has been totally useless. In not a single case have they helped me or made any real diagnosis. Glad the hospital visits were free but I've wasted too much money on doctors that have done nothing for me. And what's with them trying to get you out of there as quick as possible? If I'm paying for the visit I want to have my full hour or however long I'm booked for. My OG family doctor is great but I haven't lived anywhere near my hometown in years.

So yeah I feel you on that.

Its ironic because (I'm only in my first year of medical school) but by the end of year two/three you're expected to be able to do a cardiovascular and respiratory exam on a patient within 10 minutes. Although both are similar they're quite lengthy. But this is because of the Dr/Patient ratio in the UK (ranges from 1GP/3000 patients to 1GP/1000 patients) and because the quicker you find something with these systems the better the diagnosis. e.g. Aortic aneurysms have a mortality rate of 90% if ruptured and almost 50% if you manage to catch them.

As far as MRI goes I've had a placement in radiology and god damn they're fucking hard to understand, but if registrars and consultants don't find anything in them then it must be nearly impossible to see, they comb through that shit like no other and its all they do for years and years, hence why it can take time to get results. Also, MRI's cant detect everything sadly. Though they're cool af (you can do virtual endoscopy's and you can selectively remove structures you don't want in an image e.g. remove all blood vessels because that's just how good they're getting)

Just be glad that when you have a useless doctor visit it isn't 5600 dollars

About a month ago I ended up with severe psychosis and it was really fucking bad. First of all I thought that some guy had hung himself in my shower then when i went to check i actually saw him hanging from the neck in my shower dead, I was so sure it was real I apparently hallucinated taking him down from the shower and tried to call his family to inform them that he had hung himself in my own shower and this caused me to have extreme panic attacks.

So i freaked the fuck out and then spent the next few weeks in hospital not knowing where or who i was and apparently i was roaming about the hospital and even ended up in the cancer ward where i started roaming about the hospital and ended up saying bizarre things to cancer patients who were dying. I had no idea i was doing this and feel awful but after that the doctors finally took what was happening to me seriously and put me in my own room away from other patients.

Then i started having fits and started showing other bizarre kinds of behavior because i thought i had been in a coma for 20 years and had just woken up and from what I've been told, i was going around the hospital thinking that i worked there and ended up going up to other patients (who were probably dying) and doing bizarre things to them because i thought i actually worked there.

It was honestly the worst experience of my life and i feel awful about it but im still not sure why i did all of these things and everyone (including the doctors) told me it was probably because of LSD or some other drug that I had taken. Now that I remember things more clearly I know that I had not taken ANY drugs prior to my 2-week long hospital stay of complete psychosis but the doctors are still convinced that it was due to drugs. Now I am terrified of my own mental state and i'm worried that I might have some sort of severe mental illness or a brain tumor but they refused to test me on any of those things.

I thought i heard the doctors tell me i had some kind of incurable blood disease and thought i was legit dying and it was terrifying, I was convinced i had days to live and it was honestly the most horrific thing i have ever experienced. I just hope it doesn't happen to me again, even if it was all in my brain, it still all felt real at the time and i haven't really recovered from it yet and my parents had no idea what was going on so they were terrified as well.

i just hope this shit will never happen to me again and i wouldn't wish it on anyone but the doctors were so convinced it was drugs (that I had not been taking) they didn't really look into it.

EDIT: Some more info

I uploaded a video of me dancing (pretty well for a first timer) and basically when making it I thought I was Richard Hammond (from Top Gear)

https://youtu.be/DBCYIuxsKKk

In the description you can read:

"IIf you think you have what it takes to win then youm, over nyou haven't gone high enough yet. All we jnow is that he's the stug. Every Frid. No Jeremy's allowed.

Cadd themseles to apply as a contestant!"

This might sound weird but it was because I was watching top gear and thought i was Richard Hammond and i thought i was making a dance game show and the no Jeremy Clarkson allowed thing was a joke by me (Richard Hammond) who i actually thought i was.

It sounds kinda funny but severe psychosis is really fucking serious. I didn't think i was Richard Hammond, i KNEW i was. Then later in hospital I ended up thinking I had an incurable blood cancer and had days to live and I was so convinced I had days to live, I ended up calling all of my family members to say goodbye. My parents had no idea what was going on and it was horrific.

Basically look after your mental health and don't avoid going to appointments like I had done because trust me you do not want to end up like I did. Thankfully I am fine now but I am going to have to live the rest of my life not knowing if what I am experiencing is real or not and it is horrible.
